The Winona Sportsmen’s Club offers two different ways to have fun with your favorite .22 that we shoot Thursday evenings. We offer two options that we shoot every other week. Leagues begin May 4th, 2017.
Rimfire Sporter League: Is modeled after a CMP program of the same name. It gives shooters a recreation oriented competition that can be shot with the same favorite rimfire that they use for small game and plinking. No fancy equipment required, or allowed! The Course of Fire (COF) will require 60 rounds per night. All shooting is done at 25 & 50 yards from the Standing, sitting, and prone positions.
This COF puts a premium on accuracy, and it will make you a better, more accurate shooter.
The Pistol and Rifle ranges are open from 8:00am until sunset.
Rifle range 1 (100 yrds and under) cannot be used while the skeet range is in use.
Pistol and Rifle ranges 2 and 3 (50 yrd and under) can be used anytime except
when the Goodview PD has its scheduled shoots.
Rimfire Steel Challenge: Is a program designed to be fun and safe for shooters of all ages and skill levels. The Course of Fire will consist of steel plates set at various distances from 8 to 35 yards, and will be shot using .22 rimfire rifles and/or handguns only. Speed is the name of the game here and targets are large enough to make it fun for all.
Estimated round count per evening will be 50-80 rounds if you shoot both rifle and handgun courses.
We do have quality .22 ammo available for participants (17 & under) at ½ the current market price, so don’t let lack of ammo stop you from bringing the kids.
